Jenise and Brandon's Engagement SWITCHAROO!!!!


You cannot vote for this story anymore, as this story participated in constest that ended on June 30, 2012



In February of 2010 God introduced me to the love of my life, Jenise Walker. I was a year removed from finishing my Masters and waiting on my first career job when Jenise began working at the same hotel that I was employed with at the time in Huntvsille, AL. I was speechless when she walked past me for the first time and couldn't concentrate on my work for the remainder of the day. LOL. The first question she asked me was "WHAT'S YOUR NAME?" My heart melted and so began the start of something special.

No more than a month after we began dating I received a call for a governent job halfway across the country in Texas!!!!!! She and I were both crushed because we had really began to become really close and enjoyed where the relationship was headed but I had to leave in order to begin my career. After I moved to Texas and both of us taking our time and learning more about each other we became official boyfriend and girlfriend on June 25th 2010. The long distance of me being in Texas and Jenise still in Alabama was not really that bad over the course of the first year because it forced us to really learn the other person for who they really are because you are not blinded by the physical affection at times, but I would take trips every month or every other month to visit. We would have our fights and disagreements every now and then but nothing different that any other couple would go thru.

Our relationship took a LARGE hit in the summer of 2011 when her older Brother Justin was in a car accident and was killed by a drunk driver. It was a very trying time for our relationship especially it being long distance with her pain from losing him and I began to struggle within myself because I couldn't be there for her and it really took a toll on our relationship. We had our ups and downs and really almost ended up going our seperate ways but after time and continual prayer we began to improve slowly but surely and we took it day by day. At the beginning of this year 2012, I received confirmation that it was time to ask Jenise to be my wife and move her here to Texas and we could finally be together, but planning a proposal in Alabama would be a very tough task.

Jenise is so inquisitive and wants to be involved in everything so anything that looks suspicious she is going to ask questions, so my cousin and I devised a plan to make her believe she was helping my younger cousin propose to his longtime girlfriend. This way, anything that might have made her think I was about to propose to her was dismissed by her thinking the plan was for my yonger cousin. So to make a long story short, she helped plan her own marriage proposal and never had any idea.

The slideshow I have linked below will show you the proposal better than I can, ENJOY watching the big SWITCHAROO, and thank you for letting me share the story of our relationship with you. Be Blessed

Allison Mcdonald experience with Best for Bride - didn't come expecting to find a wedding dress

I love to shovel because I just spent I don't know how many hours at Best for Brides.
So tell us why you came to Best for Bride?
I'm on a very strict budget and I honestly didn't think that I was gonna find anything that I could afford and I saw online that this offered the most variety and I think for the best prices. I was so surprised.
So your experience was good?
Oh my gosh. Beyond good. It started all a little rough because I didn't know what I wanted I did not know what style. Donna came in and she just took over. In the end it's amazing how it happened because Donna just took the best in every dress I have tried on and put it all in one and I couldn't have asked for anything better. I am so over the moon happy right now I could cry again. Ah yeah the far better than I have ever expected this experience to be. So thank you Donna. Thank you Best for Brides because it's has been absolutely incredible. I didn't come expecting to find a dress and here we are ... going home happy.
